Hi , since few days I have been trying to put same type of items (rather icons) together, my concept is same like windows where I can put that by right click and
--> arrange icons by --> group,

So folder icons come together, pdf files come together etc etc and there is a separation between any two types of items (icons)

Can I have that facility here too, I am using fedora 13, and when ever I rightclick
unde arrange items --> name type size etc comes
but group by items is missing.

Also here refresh option is missing, what we very much familiar in windows, I know that fedora is not windows, but I think this problem can be solved.

Any help...

OSX is not Linux...
...Linux is not Windowz, Sorry.
Open your mind.

If you want a "Windows-like" desktop environment, use KDE.


Also, bumping your post 3 times in half an hour is pointless...

Gome acts in many ways like the old MacOS 9.x.
KDE acts in some ways like Windowz. But it isn't Windows.

To install KDE do the folowing:

1. connect to the internet
2. open a console
3. su -
4. root password
5. yum groupinstall "KDE (K Desktop Environment)"
6. longin to KDE.

And keep in mind... Linux is not Windowz.

If you like to get a system that work like Windowz, you have to use Windowz.
It is the great advantage of Linux, to be different.

When I migrated for W-7 to Fedora, I just added some files to the Home directory called, "Documents", "Pictures", "Videos", "Music", and "Public". This way, when I moved my files to the the new Fedora system, the migration was smoother. I also added a file called "Templates" which fuels my KOffice and OpenOffice templates I download or create.

Not sure how to make all that automatic. But the manual method doesn't take that much more time. You can also link those special files to your Desktop. You can even design a fancy Icon for your desktop which will access your special files from the Desktop.

In time you will get used to Fedora and forget you ever knew Microsoft or Mac.

You realize I had to reboot to tell you this... :mad: :D

I assume you're using Dolphin.

In the menubar, click on View>Adjust View Properties...

View Mode = "Icons"

Sorting = "Ascending" and "By Type"

Make sure "Show in groups" is checked.

In the section labeled "Apply View Properties To" select "All Folders".

Make sure "Use as default for new folders" is checked.


Edit : Added a screenshot of the settings Window, just in case.

P.S. I think it's hilarious that a GNOME user was willing to help you, while the KDE users simply chose to discourage you. ;)

Your welcome. ;)

To be honest, I'm just happy that both of you are able to take a friendly jab instead of getting all bent out of shape over it. :)

@ Dies ...Thanks man you are simply great, i always believe that whatever can be achieve in Windows it can be achieve in Fedora too. That's the beauty of this OS, i have already in the process, to use fedora all the time but for microsoft office, that can't be replaced.

Yeah that's really funny that people sometimes get relax by not to experience new things and they forced others too, I simply just avoid that. I knew that solution has to exist. I just awaited, to get a result and that's you.

however I have one question can't it bedone in gnome desktop.? can I install dophin file manager in genome environment?

I hope you have the answer.
Again thanks for your time and unconditional support.

As far as I know, Nautilus doesn't have any option to group files that way in icon view, so by default no you can't do it in GNOME.

As far as installing Dolphin in GNOME, sure, you can run any KDE program in GNOME. However, you might find that integration isn't the best.
